Located in Fort Wayne, IN, MedPro Group is the number one medical malpractice insurance company in the country. That means we provide our customers with peace of mind and expertise that we will have their back and do our best to protect them and their practice whenever a claim is filed against them. I’ve been doing a couple different things for MedPro. For one, I have been generating loss runs for our insureds. Loss runs tell our insureds their claims history for the time they have been insured by MedPro. Two, I have been creating and sending out credentialing letters. These letters are sent to different hospitals that doctors want to work for, proving that they are insured by us. They also tell the hospitals if that doctor has any claims. The third thing that I have been doing, and by far the most fun, is handling New Business applications. These are doctors that would like to be insured through us. I have to look at their applications, figure out what they do, and find out if they’ve done anything to warrant a claim or a Board Order against them. I fill out a referral sheet, verify their license, and then send the referral on the Underwriter who will decide if we are going to send a quote to them. Through this internship, I’ve learned a lot about the insurance industry, and I look forward to continuing it during the school year.
